    The Light (Part II)

    Mason Jennings

     

    / C* - - - / - - - - /

     

    C*

    And regardless, in the evening
    A light is thrown by the setting sun
    It speeds along this vast familiar
    And silently crosses everyone

     

    Chorus:

    Am                         F
    It's the light that's changing

    G                            C
    It's the light that's changing

    Am                          F
    It's the light that's changing

    G                     C
    It's only the light

     

    C*
    Across the gardens, across the schoolyards
    Across the chapels where lovers have leapt
    Across the table in our old kitchen
    Across the cities where our future slept


    Chorus

     

                              Am
    What can I do to defy you

    F                         C
    What can I do to deny you

                                                Am
    'cause I want no part of this breaking

                   F                                 G
    This is a hurtful mistake you are making

         C                                           Am
    And to me this love was true and shining

    F                                         C
    These years were real and defining

                                                      Am
    Please don't forget how much I meant to you

    F                                       G
    When you are redefined by someone new

     

    C*
    Across what's left of these old places
    Across the playgrounds where old friends play
    Across the lines on familiar faces
    Across the nothing that we say

     

    Am                         F
    It's the light that's breaking

    G                            C
    It's the light that's breaking

    Am                          F
    It's the light that's breaking

    G                   
    It's only the light

     

    C x4
